Grow­ing up, all of Car­o­line Li’s favourite books from her child­hood were about food—such as Eric Carle’s clas­sic The Very Hun­gry Cater­pil­lar—which even­tu­ally grew into a pas­sion for food and wine and fur­ther stud­ies at the famed Le Cor­don Bleu culi­nary in­sti­tute in San Fran­cisco.

“I’m a Cal­i­for­nian girl at heart and San Fran­cisco is now con­sid­ered one of the best food ci­ties in the US, so to en­roll at the Le Cor­don Bleu there is a nat­u­ral choice,” says Car­o­line. “Apart from fur­ther­ing my culi­nary skills and knowl­edge, I had the op­por­tu­nity to gain work ex­pe­ri­ence at some of the city’s top res­tau­rants, such as the Ital­ian restau­rant Quince that has two Miche­lin stars.”

Car­o­line now di­vides her time be­tween be­ing a food colum­nist for Hongkong­tatler.com, where her ar­ti­cles will be avail­able soon, and doc­u­ment­ing pho­tos and re­views of pop­u­lar res­tau­rants on her food-re­lated In­sta­gram ac­count @caz­zfood­jour­nal. In be­tween re­view­ing res­tau­rants, Car­o­line at­tends var­i­ous events around town when she can and re­lies on La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Col­lec­tion to keep her com­plex­ion look­ing firm and nour­ished.

“If I have to at­tend an event, I usu­ally try to fit in a hot yoga ses­sion be­fore­hand to get rid of wa­ter re­ten­tion. Then I’ll ap­ply La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Luxe Cream · Sheer on my face to make it glow,” says Car­o­line. “I try to keep the process sim­ple, so I can re­lax and en­joy the event with my friends.”

A fresh take on the much-loved Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, the Skin Caviar Luxe Cream · Sheer also con­tains caviar ex­tract and La Prairie’s ex­clu­sive “Cel­lu­lar Com­plex” for­mula to hy­drate and in­crease the skin’s elas­tic­ity, in a light­weight tex­ture that glides on smoothly.

Car­o­line also likes to use the Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream and lather on the Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask at night, which does dou­ble duty of elim­i­nat­ing dead skin cells while mois­tur­is­ing the skin. “I swear by the range, even when I am trav­el­ling. The Skin Caviar Col­lec­tion helps keep my skin hy­drated and fresh through­out cold weather and long-haul flights.”

And while Car­o­line is a fan of the range be­cause of the qual­ity re­sults it de­liv­ers on her skin, she finds it amus­ing that she, a foodie, will be drawn to a col­lec­tion of skin­care that is closely as­so­ci­ated with caviar.

“I love caviar, I’m a bit of a purist and tend to have it plain with bli­nis. Hav­ing it plain al­lows you to savour the full flavour of the caviar and I love the tex­ture of the pearls. Maybe that’s part of the rea­son why I was drawn to La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Col­lec­tion in the first place,” says Car­o­line with a laugh.
